Getting them started
We're in Florida for the winter.My son-in-law and I took the boys to a safety training session at the range.The instructor had a large turnout.He brought 6 .22's and each kid got to fire as much as they wanted.Our 11 year old's third session resulted in 20 rounds in 1 and 1/2 inches at 50 yards.The 10 year olds groups were about twice that.I was impressed with the instructor drilling into them that every gun is assumed to be loaded,every gun is pointed in a safe direction(downrange),and keep your finger off the trigger until your sure you want to fire and no rapid fire.

That's great on getting them disciplined that way. They will be great, safe sportsmans for you.

Teaching them the first time is the most important, nice going!

Early safety training is very important. Good job for taking them. You can continue the training by setting up an air pellet rifle rifle inside your garage to keep the learning fresh in their minds.

This instructor has sessions several times a month with various rifles and targets.The kids can come out as often as they like.
